Dark brew topped with a large dark tan head; excellent retention.

Huge coffee-forward, roasty aroma! This could be cold press coffee in a glass.

Flavor does not disappoint on that front: it's a coffee-forward brew, slightly roasty, and a touch sweet. Dark coffee is definitely the focus, with a slightly ashy finish. Creamy. Balanced without overwhelming bitterness or sweetness; restrained.

On the lighter side of the porter/stout spectrum; it's a smooth, medium mouthfeel overall. No heat. Very drinkable.

1L swingtop growler, split

Good name for a beer - probably a nod to the b&w film bearing the same name. Great looking beer with a huge chocolate cap. Sightglass coffee was used here and it's extremely potent and heavy handed. I really don't get much smoke, even as this warms to room temperature. Nice and roasty - a solid porter

Pours pitch black with a mocha colored head that pretty quickly dissipates leaving a thin ring around the edge of my snifter. The aroma is intoxicating, I could smell this as soon as I popped open the growler and I continue to smell it as it sits on the table away from me. Roasted espresso, iced coffee, milk chocolate, smoke, and vanilla on the nose. The front of the palate opens up with sweet milk chocolate, in the middle it evolves to freshly roasted coffee and burnt malt, the smoke is very subtle while the coffee really comes forward. Back end of the palate closes with roasted malt and a nice bitterness. Quite good, though it could be a little more complex. I don't get any of the vanilla in the taste that I picked up in the aroma. The smoke really lingers on the palate rounding this out.

Edit: Had to come back to this one. As this warmed I started to get some vanilla and this beer really started to become more complex. Think Victory at Sea when you imagine this beer....
